Many churches in the world claim that the Sabbath was abolished because it was an Old Testament law. However, the commandment to keep the Sabbath is the fourth of the Ten Commandments (Exodus 20:8-11). Then, is it not necessary to keep the Ten Commandments in the New Testament Age?

Let’s check the content of the Ten Commandments. What is the first of the Ten Commandments? It says, “You shall have no other gods before me.”

Exodus 20:1-3 And God spoke all these words: “I am the Lord your God, who brought you out of Egypt, out of the land of slavery. “You shall have no other gods before me.

But since this first commandment was the law of the Old Testament, it was abolished, and in the New Testament era, can we say that it is okay to worship other gods? no. No one who believes in God thinks like that. In other words, even in the New Testament era, we must keep the first commandment. So what about the second commandment, “You shall not make idols,” or the third commandment, “You shall not misuse the name of the Lord your God”?

Exodus 20:4–7 “You shall not make for yourself an image in the form of anything in heaven above or on the earth beneath or in the waters below. You shall not bow down to them or worship them; for I, the Lord your God, am a jealous God, punishing the children for the sin of the parents to the third and fourth generation of those who hate me, but showing love to a thousand generations of those who love me and keep my commandments. “You shall not misuse the name of the Lord your God, for the Lord will not hold anyone guiltless who misuses his name.

If you believe in God, you must observe this as well. Then How about the fifth through tenth commandments?

Exodus 20:12–17 “Honor your father and your mother, so that you may live long in the land the Lord your God is giving you. “You shall not murder. “You shall not commit adultery. “You shall not steal. “You shall not give false testimony against your neighbor. “You shall not covet your neighbor’s house. You shall not covet your neighbor’s wife, or his male or female servant, his ox or donkey, or anything that belongs to your neighbor.”

If you are God’s people, of course, shouldn’t you keep all these commandments? After all, from the first commandment to the tenth commandment, there is no commandment that we can neglect. But can you say that you need to keep all the other nine commandments out of the Ten Commandments, but you don’t need to keep the fourth commandment? It can’t be. That’s a contradictory claim to anyone’s eyes. If the Sabbath was abolished, the other nine commandments do not need to be kept, and if the other nine commandments must be kept, the Sabbath must also be kept.

Therefore, the claim that the Sabbath was abolished because it was an Old Testament law is false. The fourth commandment is clearly written in the Bible.

Exodus 20:8–10 “Remember the Sabbath day by keeping it holy. Six days you shall labor and do all your work, 10but the seventh day is a sabbath to the Lord your God.

Even today, we must keep the fourth commandment, the Sabbath day, holy.

    If you want to keep God‘s commandments completely, you must also keep the commandments on the Sabbath. Also, God commanded us to keep the Sabbath until the end of the world.

    One of important thing is we should keep the New testament Sabbath not the Old testament Sabbath.

    Jesus taught us how to keep the Sabbath.

    WMSCOG is only church which keeps that New Covenant Sabbath as Jesus’s teaching

    In Genesis, God created this whole world for 6 days, and rested on the seventh day, that is the Sabbath day. And He blessed the day and made it holy so that we can be holy and get the blessing wen we keep the Sabbath day.

    In the ten commandments, there is the Sabbath that God orderd to keep it.
    As they say “we have to keep the ten commandments”, they would keep the Sabbath.
    But, they don’t keep the Sabbath.
    God always commanded to keep the Sabbath.
    The Bible proves this.
    So, we should keep the Sabbath until the end.

    Sunday is not in the Bible. The Bible only commands us to keep the Sabbath until the end of the age. Let us all keep the Sabbath and enter the Kingdom of Heaven.








  • 2023-06-08 13:34

    Let us keep the Sabbath day holy as the teachings of the Bible!








  • 2023-06-08 13:34
